This is the Katia Florida Summer Top that I started working on today. Katia of Spain is the manufacturer of this beautiful yarn. This photo is from the website http://www.elann.com The yarn I chose for my sweater is a soft peachy color called "Wildflowers." It has peach, ivory, and pale lavender in it...all very soft. It will be so perfect for traveling to Europe this summer. I am hoping to get it finished up in the next two weeks so I can be wearing it as I take off for Munich on June 20th.
The yarn feels so good as I am knitting it. I began the knitting right after I opened the box that arrived from http://www.elann.com I have never ordered from them before and when I found the website I was excited to see the beautiful things available and I immediately knew I had to have a couple of them. The order arrived very quickly and the packing is the best possible. Shipping was very quick. I am delighted with the yarns I received.
I had ordered yarn to make two of the sweaters on the website. The patterns are free and I ordered the yarns suggested with the patterns. I will take photos as my sweater progresses. I just can't tell you how silky soft and nice this yearn feels as I am knitting. And, the colors are so luscious. I am a satisfied customer and expect to be a return customer in the future.
WhileI enjoy walking through a local yarn shop and feeling and touching all the yarns before making final selections, it was still very exciting to order a yarn I had not touched and had no idea what it would be until it arrived. I am pleasantly surprised. I am very glad I just took a chance and ordered the yarn because it is fantastic.
